One Year with Theo

One Year with Theo

Just over a year ago, I moved into a little house on my own. Even though I was pushing 30, this was a huge step for me as I had just come out of a long-term relationship and had never lived on my own. I was heartbroken and my head was all over the place. … Continue reading

It’s Not Enough To Just Survive

It’s Not Enough To Just Survive

Tonight I had the pleasure of seeing Sheffield’s home grown artist Neil McSweeney performing in a church on Psalter Lane. As ever, it was an amazing gig, enhanced by a brilliant warm up performance from the soulful Lost Brothers. Many of Neil’s songs mean a lot to me and bring me to tears, so I … Continue reading

Winter is Coming…

Winter is Coming…

Winter is coming. I know this not because Sean Bean says it in Game of Thrones. I know this not simply because it’s November, the clocks have gone back and it’s colder. I know winter is coming because of the following signals my body has been giving me recently: – I’ve begun to feel tired … Continue reading

I’ve intended to go to another one since that first swishing event but haven’t heard about many in the Sheffield area. Last night, however, I went to an Evening of Swishing, held above the … Continue reading

This little book…

It’s been quite an eventful 12 months, hence why I have neglected my blog. It’s been a year of change, a year of various losses and a year with some gains. Throughout this time, I have had what have felt like a million different thoughts and emotions going through my mind, and have often struggled … Continue reading

Multi-Coloured Swap Shop

I had a new experience at the weekend… I attended my first clothes swap and it was brilliant! I’ve heard about clothes swaps before and even intended to go along to one I’d heard about a couple of years ago but never managed to make it in the end, so the concept of clothes swapping … Continue reading

Nākd competition: And the winner is…

A few weeks ago, I announced a healthy (and very tasty!) competition on my blog to win a box of delicious Nākd bars from the lovely people over at Natural Balance Foods. The competition asked readers to share with us one change they’d like to make in 2013 towards a healthier lifestyle and I’m delighted to … Continue reading

First of all, allow me to begin my first blog post of 2013 by wishing you, dear reader, a very ‘Happy New Year!’ So, the party season is officially over (boo!) and 2013 is now upon us. Whether we believe in making resolutions or not, I’m sure the vast majority of us will have made … Continue reading

Typsy Takes to The Stage

Typsy Takes to The Stage

So, I did it! Last Friday (October 12), I made my debut as newbie burlesque performer, Typsy Tease, at the ‘Shake, Rattle & Roll’ night, held in aid of St Luke’s Hospice, at The Shakespeare, Sheffield. I was performing at the charity event along with fellow graduates from the Secrets of the Boudoir Burlesque course. … Continue reading
